  1. Thank you for all the links, I wonder how many orders they will get today and as the month goes on
  2. Round 2 of red, I'm just nabbing these from a facebook group
  3. Here is your next first impressionable view of the Emira, this time in red (this wont be the FE red)
  4. It's almost comical they are making a move to "online" a concept this senior member of staff is oblivious to the inner workings of, the number 1 attribute of online is the mountain of information at your fingertips. It's like watching my grandma trying to unlock her phone. Bell & Colvill don't get their demo car until June, the same delivery month as mine and many others. I can't believe that I am expected to sign on the dotted line to pay £80k before Lotus themselves simply show a picture of the car in my colour. Mind boggling, what are they so scared of/hiding. At first is was enticing, now it's just offensive
  5. Ah yes my bad, thanks Just seen this one on facebook, looks like it’s nimbus grey?
  6. I’m surprised these haven’t been added to this forum yet, here are photos of two white Emiras in case anybody hasn’t seen them. The dirty one is a i4 mule apparently and the clean one is filming with Top gear yesterday
  7. Who’s bought a good Emira number plate already? I would love to see them
  8. @SDLOTUS I reckon you should give them a ring on Monday, they should be able to answer any questions you've got and what a late 2nd payment means LOTUS CUSTOMER CARE Tel: +44 (0) 330 0948047 Email: [email protected]
  9. Hi Badger, I see nobody has popped up with privacy ticked so I will throw one in for you, mine will be but I think it's completely personal preference. I've always had privacy glass like you, I've never had an issue with not seeing out of the blind spot and I like creeping in my rear view mirror in traffic. Like Tom said it's only a 20% tint anyway so you'll still see the engine bay The grey Emira we've been seeing does not have privacy glass, I'm pretty sure the blue car wasn't tinted either? I don't think we have seen a car with the privacy glass yet so we don't have a reference to go off There is a B pillar on the Emira so with or without privacy glass there is still a thick black transition between the two side windows, unlike on an e89 Z4 or convertible c class for example. I do get Andy's point though, it's not a issue for me personally. Will you see the engine bay a bit better? Yes, a bit. Should you remove the privacy glass because other people have? no Worth noting in case anybody reading misunderstands this part, I think that factory privacy glass is made with a dye in the glass rather than a tinted film applied which would be removable, so you wouldn't be able to remove the 20% tint without changing the glass, however you can spec no privacy and always have it installed afterwards.
  10. For me personally I'm that guy they caught with their £60k price carrot in July, which in reality obviously was going to be £75k which is £80k OTR which I justified with my man maths, if it went up again I would probably have to leave it
  11. Ideally I would like to see a choice to collect from factory and no valet as I am in Norwich a lot and my car is going straight to single stage polish/ceramic coat. If I had the choice to not pay for the delivery or the valet that would be much appreciated. I don't mind if the collection is nothing fancy either if it saves me a decent amount of money, I can see the factory/track another day I do understand this is a big operation though and there is a logistical cost to everything including specifically saying this one car is not to be valeted and is being collected from here
  12. It actually looks amazing in every colour! I can't stop looking at it 😂 I think whatever you order, you're going to be very happy. BUT also whenever we all see one in another colour there will be equal envy from both drivers ha
  13. Very happy with the configurator, a bit annoyed my spec has been locked a week before this came out though, and as the email says, "changes to your configuration will mean that your order will be removed out of the production line and rescheduled which will delay your estimated delivery." If it's now confirmed the diamond cut alloys are not like the ones seen in Lotus NYO I would probably want to change back to them after seeing the proper lower black pack and renders for the first time Is it a bug that the lower black pack changes the colour of the diffuser and side sill? It might not be that obvious in the screenshots, but if you have a play turning it black pack on and off you will see it
  14. Did you ask about factory collection? I’m very keen for this

    Lotus Emira

    At this price point? I’m interested in what other cars you are comparing the interior to at £60-£75k. In my opinion, unless you spend £200k+ the quality of interiors do not step up
  16. New Configurator and video of your chosen spec coming on 24th January as well as finance info
  17. Hi All, I received this reply from customer care regarding the diamond cut alloys when i asked if they will be like the blue uk show car or the Shanghai wall hung alloy we’ve seen pictures of at Lotus NYO. They say the Diamond cut alloys will be the same as the ones on the pre production car in the UK.
  18. When they phoned you, did you make any changes? I think the email i received was only because i made changes
  19. Lots of different colours in those pictures! A friend of mine said he saw a white one on the roads recently
  20. Received this email today following the June est delivery phonecall I received on 17th December I was going to stick with changing the alloy type depending on when it’s confirmed which style the diamond cut alloy was (blue show car or shanghai yellow car) as there is ambiguity on that at the moment. Because of this, on the call it was said I will still have the option to confirm the change once the factory let the customer care representative and myself know any delay impact my changes might have, following which I could decide whether to confirm the change or not. Email reads as though my changes are just going through since there was no delay and without my confirmation and it’s locked in, changing this will now cause a delay 😂 i’m ok with it but would have been nice to have the changes written in the email. Be careful when you’re asked if you want to make a minor change because they made it seem like it wasn’t the final say but it is.
  21. I had this company ceramic coat my car in Northamptonshire, came out stunning and my emira will be going here. Price was less than a grand too and the facility was very nice, some nice car porn on site to see which the owner was happy to show
  22. Non black pack photoshop from reddit. Shame there hasn’t been much more shown of the Shanghai car
  23. Ah right that settles that for me then thank you, i wouldn’t have been happy if i went to collect the car expecting those nice diamond cuts on the show car and got what look like knock offs on the Chinese car
